    Default Cubby house - show me and some advice please

    I want to get the kids a cubby house for Christmas. We had one as kids and practically lived in it. I want one I can put in the yard with a kitchen etc.

    Does anyone have a good one? Can you share a picture ? Where did you get it from? Do your kids use it?

    Subbing! Realised on the weekend that my daughter does not need one more inside toy so we're thinking of getting her one big outside toy for Christmas and are thinking of a cubby house.

    I got one for our back yard a few years ago now

    http://www.foryourbackyard.com.au/products/cubby-houses

    its fantastic. DD loves it.

    I looked into them a lot, and while this is more expensive than I was really looking at, they have a good re-sale price when you are finished with them so I figured it was a better choice.

    I have the 'banksia' - which is a great size. It comes in pre-assembled peices. so 4 walls, 2 roof sections, the floor, and the porch section.

    It was easy to put together (takes 2 people) and DD loves it.

    This is DDs cubby house. We got it and the kitchen set to go in it built. I love it. The only thing I would change is I would have the front verandah wider and to go round the 3 sides instead of 2.
    DD uses if often and has done since she was 2.

    At what age do most kids (girls in particular) stop using their cubby houses?

    DD is 5 I'm hoping she gets a few years use from it, I will pick one more suitable for an older child if I can.
